Tryin' not to go to jail, tryin' not to cake up
Chillin' in my sock, servin' ice for ten bucks
And ya ass got the sweater with the fire lit
If ya wanna a glass of water hit the maid on the ringer
Tellin' me to hurry up and get some more shit done
Got so many calluses my hands are like leather
Tryin' out slang words while you combin' ya hair
Go get some coffee punch out before ya leave
While I lift, push, pull, dig, sweat, and sweep
Cause the world is controlled by you lazy motherfuckers
You's a lazy motherfucker, lazy mother-fucker
If you roll out of bed it's like you doin' a favor
For a midnight snack, you have the bedroom catered
I got my ear to the street and my eye on you
On how to make us work hard and fatten up your vaults
But you pay em' to say that so we don't want it different
You're hearin' this cause somebody pushed play for you
To keep my eyelids open takes concentration
Making you stay rich without you moving a muscle
So when your dick salute
And say your sex drive's stronger than the engine of a trucker

A hundred person house there just to sanitize
Millions over millions makin' shit for you to sell
But it's gon' happen captain, hope ya know that's why I'm rappin'
Cause this whole system's waitin' for you to kick it in Paris
So when you spend a dollat that's ten seconds of my time
Cause to me life is hard like a track that I'm reppin' on
Later for the pull up ya boot strap fastened
But we can work hard to take back the bread and butter
